Lineup H does have a case–maybe Loney is hitting lefties much better than Kiermaier–but it would be strange if the Rays were willing to put Forsythe in because say Odorizzi was on the mound but left out their best outfield defender in Kiermaier. It’s difficult to see the Rays starting Rivera at first base more than a couple of times all year, but this lineup does look solid offensively with enough defense to be fine.
